12oz bottle pours copper with weak off white head. The modest aroma offers up some sweet malts mixing with lemon and grapefruit like citrus hop notes. The taste is similar with a fairly pleasing level of somewhat acidic citrus hop bitterness with much lesser amounts of sweet malts and a touch of caramel like malts. Nice Pale.

On tap at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London, 05.08.11 Golden with a white head, very slight haziness. Easy drinking pale ale, lightly hoppy, some biscuity malt, light citrus, it’s fine. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov13 3.1 freekyp (2193) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2011
An unmistakeably American-styled pale ale, Headwaters is rife with grapefruit aroma hops. Solid toffee malt backbone carries the floral flavoring hops through to a balanced finish. A hop bomb with dialed down bitterness. Fantastic. nittanytide (283) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Poured golden in color with a half finger, white head. Aroma is floral, biscuity. Taste is rather plain, but not bland. Bread and grass dominated the tasting. I could see this complementing a variety of summer foods. tgncc (3130) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2011
The aroma is earth, flowers, caramel. Deep amber, translucent, white head. The flavor is caramel, flowers. Medium in body. The finish is flowers, resin. Decent APA.

Bottle. Floral orange and grapefruit peel/pine hops aroma. Clear amber color with moderate head. Sweet malt and moderate grapefruit peel hops flavor. Very nice. marcus (10147) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours orange copper with a fluffy off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that is well-balanced with subtle hopping. Easy to drink. WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Pours a medium-dark orange with slightly off white head. Head fades too quickly for top marks, but the color is very nice. Aroma is very nice, with an orangey citrus note from the hops. Flavor is drier than I expected. The citrus aroma of the hops takes a background role in the flavor, giving the hoppiness a more bitter character. Overall, a very nice APA. radagast83 (8011) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2011
12oz bottle. Poured a copper color with a small white head. Aroma was pine notes, a bit citrus, malts, slight caramel notes. Flavor was hoppy, sweet malts, touch of yeast. Very well made. Terminus (3679) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2011
bottle-pours bright orange with a soapy white head with fairly big bubbles and some decent carbonation. nose is herbal, piney, green, almost earthy hop notes, doesnt smell like us hop varieties. some asprin like notes as well. flavors are grainy, lighly earthy/piney with some herbal tea like notes, grains, cereal, and some oxidization. Hmm, its not bad, but not great. definately a sessionable pale ale but par for the course for Victory these days.
